  • Definitely worth the visit if you are into fragrances like I am. A quick and free tour of the history of Parfum and insights that can be used in everyday lives from experts. Our guide, Julia was great and very knowledgeable. At the end of the tour you get to try some of their exclusiv perfumes and purchase them if you want. I did end up buying one and it was totally worth it, best souvenir from Paris
  • Nice, small museum in the city center. The entrance is free but they also offer a guided tour. There is information in both French and English. It’d be more perfect if there were some scents (like their famous scent, Belle de Nuit) for visitors to smell during the visit. You can try most of their perfumes in the store at the end of the museum though.
